Coupling (BBC). What a wonderful show. Thank you TV Talk!

Because of some of the discussions on here about this BBC program, I decided to Netflix the first season, and I watched the first three episodes last night. Oh my God, what a hilarious show. The jokes are fast and funny, the characters are becoming well developed, and their checmistry is really strong (plus, the blonde is pretty hot, especially when she's walking around in her underwear. Man, what an ass).

In the third episode, the one about the funeral, I about lost it when the guys were
Spoiler:
"playing Reservoir Dogs."
That has got to be one of the funniest single moments I have ever seen on a sitcom.

Those of you who have never looked into this show (and who are not offended by sexual humor), I urge you to check it out. Those of you who have talked about this how here, thank you for turning me on to it. I have Netflixed the remaining available seasons and look forward to watching them all.

You're welcome and I thank the people who turned me on to it last year at about this time.

I just started watching it as well ( A Tivo suggestion) and I love it as well.

Does it matter if you see them out of order?

A little bit I suppose. I think I saw a couple of S2 episodes before I saw S1.

It's not a huge requirement, but I would watch in order if at all possible.

I have never seen the show either but was turning channels last night and came across an episode. I enjoyed it too. I am guessing these are the later episode that they are showing now and wasnt quite sure what the relationships were but I'll definitely check it out now.
With all these reality programs I need something good to watch.

A big fat ditto... the show is hilarious! ... and thanks also to everyone who recommended Sports Night and Family Guy, two shows I bought blind because of recommendations I read here, and are now two of my all-time favorite TV shows.

Nobody here turned me onto it. I just happened to catch it on PBS one lonely Satuday night.

^ Coupling comes on PBS? Ive only seen older BBC shows on PBS (Fawlty Towers, Are You Being Served?), nothing as recent as Coupling.
A friend of mine got me watching it...now Ive bought the first 3 seasons and downloaded half of season 4 (and yeah, Ill buy S4 when its released ).

One of the best shows I've been watching... I've turned quite a few people onto it.

Hell... I even bought someone the Season 1 dvd as a gift!

I only discovered the series from a friend a few months ago but i promptly went to a video store, rented series 1 - 3 dvds, burnt them, gave them back and have downloaded all of Series 4 eps to date

the show does rock

the American version is so bad it's not funny. It's bad enough to kill the careers of all the actors but i feel bad for them, very hard to follow in other's footsteps

I watched this show because a friend of mine recomended it. Glad I did because it is one of the funniest tv shows I have ever seen. I watched a couple of episodes with a friend of mine and he is also hooked. I finally broke down and bought the 1st 3 seasons from BMG yesterday.
